About the Book
THIS ALBUM was originally published in 2006 as a limited edition hard-bound book to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the creation of Llewellyn Park.
THE ORIGINAL ALBUM produced by Llewellyn Haskell around 1870 was used to promote sales of properties in Llewellyn Park. It was brought to our attention by Keith Robbins, a former resident of 62 Glen Avenue. The graphic design and modern photos are by Bill Westheimer (a Proprietor of 62 Glen Avenue) and completed in the spring of 2006. Alan Bennett (a Proprietor of 28 Oak Bend) provided guidance on the project. Some of the modern photos are not exact analogues of the historic photographs due to changes in the landscape or where the original locations could not be found. The historic map shown in this album is circa 1857 and was not part of the original album, but is typical of those used to promote Llewellyn Park in those early days.
This book was created to support the LLEWELLYN PARK PRESERVATION FOUNDATION, INC. whose mission includes projects to restore the historic Willow Lodge (Gatehouse) and Ramble which appear frequently in this album.
